A New York, NY 10034 rescue helping to find loving homes for cats.
1 - 20 of 120 Adoptable Pets at This Shelter
We work throughout all five boroughs of NYC, but primarily focus on the South Bronx and East Harlem. We are happy to help any cat in any borough if needed.
Although we primarily adopt out within the Tri-State Area, we are open to out of state adoptions. Please email with our adoptions team directly to further discuss.
If you are interested in adopting a cat, please fill out our adoption application. Note that our new application is a google form.
We don't conduct an in person interview, but we call you, your listed references, and listed veterinarian to learn more about you.
This step is optional - if you wish to meet your cat before the official adoption, please let us know and we will set up a meeting.
After calling all of your listed references and listed vet, we will either approve or not approve your adoption application.
Although we do not have an official adoption contract, our adoptions team will cover our adoption guidelines with you.
When we drop off the cat at your home we will conduct a home visit to let you know if your home is suited for adoption.
If your home is set for the cat we will have you pay the adoption fee while we drop off your adopted cat. Your cat will now be at your home!
Little Wanderers NYC is a grassroots 501c3 non-profit organization rescuing sick and injured cats from the five New York City boroughs.
Little Wanderers NYC runs solely with the help of volunteers. Our core volunteers help to maintain daily tasks and rescue needy cats off of the tough NYC streets. We focus on rescuing street cats with the help of our rescue team and placing them in foster homes until they find their FURever families.
Our mission is to rescue and TNR as many street cats in NYC as possible. We strive to never give up on a cat, regardless of their illnesses or their challenges. We believe that all cats deserve a place to call home and a family who will love them. LWNYC hopes to give this to all cats who come into our care in the most timely manner possible.
Space in New York City is really expensive and requires a staff to maintain the space, therefore we do not have a physical shelter location and rely on foster families to care for our cats. We hold adoption events where prospective adopters are able to meet cats and kittens who they are interested in adopting.
In 2018 ALONE, we helped more than 650 cats! Our efforts stretch from rescuing and homing stray cats to TNR’ing feral cats and colony management.
All of our adoptable cats come up to date on vaccinations, neutered/spayed, SNAP tested, de-flead, de-wormed, and microchipped. The cost of our adoption fees go towards vetting all of our rescued cats.
